Review & Excerpt: Stripped by Tara Wyatt

The Faerie Queen’s review I think I’ve found a new niche: men in uniform. I thought it was just sports uniforms, but it seems I’ve got a thing for cops and firefighters, too. In this one, it’s a cop show, with two undercover detectives partnered up after a mind-blowing one night stand. She’s determined to prove herself, while he’s a grumpy man who admits to finding his attraction to her overwhelmingly distracting. The sparks were flying. Clothes were flying, too. I liked Brooke and Sawyer separately, with both showing dedication, intelligence, confidence, and humour. But together, they were incredible. The chemistry was off-the-charts, and there was a generous helping of heat without overshadowing the plot and characters. You know you’ve got a good romance when you’re squirming in your seat just as much as the heroine! But they also had their deeper and sweeter moments. Under his gruff exterior, Sawyer […]

Review & Excerpt: Virgin Territory by Lia Riley

Review & Excerpt: Virgin Territory by Lia Riley

The Faerie Queen’s review TW: High school bullying, grief, drug use, stalking Anyone who has stuck around for the last three years of me blogging will know that I developed a love for ice hockey romances. Don’t ask me why. I’ve never watched a game, and about all I know is that people play with sticks, pucks, and fists, and the game is divided into periods, not halves or quarters. That’s it. But books about ice hockey players really get me going, and I’m just going to go with it. I figured this book would be a safe bet. A goalie with a bit of a temper is sent to relax with a yoga instructor. Said goalie also happens to be a virgin (wow, a virgin hero?!), while the yoga instructor is a few years older and a quite a bit more experienced. Neither wants relationships for different reasons. And […]

Excerpt: Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis

The holidays are slowly starting to creep up on us. I know that I, for one, like to read a few holiday-themed books, especially right around Christmas. If you’re anything like me, you might be on the prowl for some new reads, and I’ve got one for you. Today, you can try a taster from Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis! First, here’s a bit more about the book. About the book Excerpt At the empathetic tone in Sean’s voice, Lotti’s heart and stomach and head all clenched in unison. “What do you mean you can’t give me what I want?” she asked. “All you have to do is walk away.” “Tried that already,” he said. “And it was the biggest mistake of my life.” He brought her hand up to his mouth and met her gaze over their entwined hands. He was looking at her like . . . well, she wasn’t sure what was […]

Review: Necessary Roughness by Julie Brannagh

Review: Necessary Roughness by Julie Brannagh

The Faerie Queen’s review After an ok start, this book slowly but surely got worse and worse. The only reason I kept going is because someone said the ending was ok. While the main characters – Jordan and Tanner – were fine, the secondary characters, particularly the women, were a joke. They all seemed to be caricatures: either they were ditzy, or they were ditzy AND cruel. Tanner’s first live-in nurse showed up for a couple of scenes, only to decide to sexually harass him out of nowhere, and this was somehow connected to the ex-girlfriend who dumped him but then kept sending him sexts. It was like all the women had to be nightmares to make Jordan look like the only option. The relationship between Jordan and Tanner also didn’t make sense. They claimed to hate each other, but there wasn’t enough showing of this. If anything, maybe they […]
